A fully waterproof and breathable 2.5 layer hard shell, the Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket is an excellent lightweight option for hikers and backpackers seeking a balance of features and minimalistic design for wet weather. A fully waterproof and breathable 2.5 layer hard shell, the Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket is an excellent lightweight option for hikers and backpackers seeking reliable protection from wet or windy weather.
Offering a balance of features and minimalistic design, the Torrentshell Jacket offers durable weather protection that packs into one of the hand pockets for storage. Patagonia uses its H2No Barrier technology to keep the elements on the outside while you remain dry inside. Patagonia's 2.5-layer H2No shell fabrics are waterproof, windproof, breathable and very packable. Water-repellent shell fabric combined with an H2No waterproof barrier and a raised pattern on the inside help to make the Torrentshell's fabric light and compressible. Pit zips with storm flaps allow for increased ventilation. The hood rolls down, stows away, and has a laminated visor with peripheral vision adjustment drawcords that let you fine tune the fit when the weather gets nasty.
Other features of the Torrentshell Jacket include low-profile storm flaps at the front zipper, Velcro adjustable cuffs and an adjustable drawcord hem. Two zippered hand pockets and a single interior drop-in pocket stow needed items like a wallet or phone, while a soft, micro-fleeced lined collar offers comfort and durability in a region of the jacket that sees a lot of wear.
Available in a variety of size and color options, the Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket offers a regular fit that layers well over light to medium weight fleece, sweaters or base layers.

Likes: Great wind blocking ability in this jacket. Wore it on a 28 degree windy day and it did an amazing job with a down jacket underneath. Still haven't had the opportunity to test the waterproof claims.
